I saw a video that had a quick shot of a guy doing a nose blem. It looks like a variation on the powerslide. Seems he somehow mashed the nose of his board in the water and then slide around to ride the slide out--kind of doing a backwards wheelie on the water. The middle of the trick has the nose riding in the water and tail swung around in front. <BR> <BR>Anyone know how to do this trick? Anyone have any tricks on starting it? i.e. how do you get the nose to start sliding and not diving...

I think you are right--it is a Nose Blunt. A Blem is probably closer to what I'm doing. :) I think I figured out how to get the nose planted--just can't stay up very long after I do. To get the nose planted it is a easy as starting the powerslide and then digging the nose in while lifting up the back of the board. I can feel the back of board start to swing around as I try to stabilize myself--that's about the time I eat it. Maybe tomorrow I'll figure it out...
